Event Details

TCT Show is the event for Design-to-Manufacturing innovation; a world leading trade show focused on additive manufacturing, 3D printing, design and engineering technology.

For over 20 years, TCT Show has set the agenda for product development, engineering and manufacturing professionals; bringing together thought-leaders, 300+ exhibiting companies and over 10,000 attendees from 60 countries.

This 3-day event delivers business-critical insights, intelligence and inspiration for additive manufacturing, CAD/CAM/CAE, metrology, inspection and materials as well as conventional manufacturing processes such as moulding, casting and CNC machining. You will experience innovative show floor features, learning zones, demonstrations, product launches and a world-class conference and seminar programme all under one roof.

TCT Show is the place for insight, intelligence, inspiration and, most importantly, where companies come to do business. We’ll see you there!
